Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-01 03:29:05 UTC
pygnome-gtkhtml fixed in next build of gnome-python2.

timeconfig needs a redhat-config-date TUI and an obsoletes in redhat-config-date.

All the rest are just old dead packages.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-01-03 06:10:02 UTC
I just wrote a TUI for redhat-config-date to replace timeconfig. 
redhat-config-date-1.5.7-1 should replace /usr/sbin/timeconfig with a shell
script that launches a python replacement for the timeconfig command.

For historical reasons, the name of the program will remain 'timeconfig'
although it is now a python program that uses the redhat-config-date backend.  I
also made redhat-config-date obsolete timeconfig in the spec file.

QA, please verify

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 14:31:25 UTC
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time.  I am closing these as Rawhide now.  If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
